February 2015 HLAA WEBINAR

unnamed-6In a Webinar announced just prior to airing, Dr. Dusty Jessen presented “5 Keys to Communication Success”. This presentation on February 18 was recorded and is available on the HLAA website.

Dusty Jessen has been an audiologist in a busy ENT practice for more than 12 years. In 2013 she wrote and published a handbook (Frustrated by Hearing Loss? 5 Keys to Communication Success) to help people cope with the challenges related to hearing loss.

Summary
Communication is our way, as human beings, of connecting with each other and with the world around us. Hearing is just one piece of the communication puzzle. Hearing aids, cochlear implants, and assistive listening devices do a wonderful job of helping people to hear. But better hearing will not facilitate better communication unless the other pieces of the puzzle are put into place. The 5 Keys to Communication Success is a simple and fun way to learn and practice strategies that target all pieces of the communication puzzle.
